Unified in service to God

The beauty of a garden, a desert, a rain forest, or coral reef isn’t only in the diversity of creation on display; it’s the fact that this incredible diversity of creation is unified into a single, working ecosystem.

People, too, display wonderful diversity. We all have different points of view, different backgrounds, different experiences. Unifying a diverse group of individuals into a single organization furnishes the organization with great strength and potential. The Bible describes Peter’s acknowledgment of Jesus as the Messiah, as the foundation of the Christian Church (see Matthew 16:16–18). As a follower of Jesus’ teachings, the Apostle Paul built a sturdy temple on that foundation. Taking several trips around the Mediterranean, Paul unified people of incredible diversity and background into the beginnings of the Christian Church. 

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
